Toro Rosso presents 2016 livery at Barcelona
Toro Rosso officially uncovered its 2016 livery ahead of the final Formula 1 pre-season test at Barcelona.
The Red Bull junior team delayed its presentation of the STR11 due to time constraints on the design of the car, which will incorporate a Ferrari power unit instead of the Renault engine used last year.
Driven by an unchanged driver line-up of Carlos Sainz and Max Verstappen, the STR11 features the familiar dark blue, red and gold colours.
The car ran in a dark blue interim livery during last week’s first pre-season hit-out at the Circuit de Catalunya.
“We are proud of this car and what it represents in terms of the work that went into designing and building it in record time in our new facility in Faenza,” said team boss Franz Tost.
“And I am particularly pleased that 2016 sees a return to Ferrari power, with everyone looking forward to working once again with our friends from Maranello.”
Verstappen is due to jump behind the wheel for the opening day of the test.
